LAN segemnts

Four LAN segments: Three with 50 hosts each, and the fourth segment having 250 hosts. I want to connect these 4 segments with a switch, but I am unsure of how the address tables are compiled. Are there restrictions on the number of address that can be assigned to any single port? Would a 1900 or 2950 be suitable? Should be 10/100 and capable of full duplex. VLANs not used at this time.

Re: LAN segemnts

The tables are bult up via 802.1d, this link will give you the basic's of bridging.

as for the No of MAC address the 2950 can handle is 8,000 so yes you would not have an issue, however i would suggest that you look at creating VLAN's to minimise your collision/Broadcast domain as this can have a major impact on network performance.
